Matthew Lewis Cast in Series 4 of ‘Ripper Street’
Filed Under Matthew Lewis

Digital Spy reports this morning that Matthew Lewis has been cast in series 4 of Ripper Street. He will be playing a policeman of unknown name, but we will keep you updated as news develops.

“From our new studio set in Ireland, it has been a delight to watch this cast reunite and grow,” series creator Richard Warlow said. “As these new characters’ lives take shape on the page, it is a daily inspiration to know that they will be brought to life by the most magnificent troupe of actors Ripper Street has yet assembled.”

Series four will premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime Instant Video – with a broadcast date still TBC. The third series is currently airing on Friday nights at 9pm on BBC One. For fans who want to catch up on the series you can watch it via the links below:

A description of the first series is as follows:

Haunted by the failure to catch London’s most evil killer, Jack the Ripper, Inspector Edmund Reid now heads up the notorious H Division – the toughest police district in the East End. Charged with keeping order in the blood-stained streets of Whitechapel, Reid and his men find themselves fighting to uphold justice and the rule of law; but always in the background lurks the fear of the Ripper – is he back for another reign of terror? Rich episodic storylines meld with the intrigue of a criminal underworld festering on the hard streets of Victorian London, following the battle of the men whose job it is to bring the law to the lawless.

Jenn Murray Cast in ‘Fantastic Beasts’

More casting news has been released today thanks to The Wrap (and SnitchSeeker for getting confirmation.) Jenn Murray has been cast as “a key role” in the film.  In the article they mention Ezra Miller as being cast in the film. It should be noted that Ezra has denied that he is involved, but multiple sources have confirmed him in the film.

Katherine Waterston and Alison Sudol will co-star as sisters alongside Ezra Miller and Dan Fogler. Murray is expected to share scenes with Miller’s character, who’s a rival of sorts to Newt Scamander.

Colin Farrell Cast in ‘Fantastic Beasts’

Reports surfaced yesterday stating that Irish actor Colin Farrel has been cast in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them as Graves, a wizard that Newt Scamander meets while in New York City.

This news comes from The Hollywood Reporter, which has been a bit off in casting news in the past. The news was posted yesterday and hasn’t been denied by Warner Bros. or Colin as of yet, but do keep in mind that it could be a rumor.

We will of course share more news as it develops!
